8th International Conference on Informatics in Control, Automation and
Robotics (ICINCO)




ICINCO is sponsored by INSTICC <http://www.insticc.org/>  – Institute for
Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication


The purpose of the 8th International Conference on Informatics in Control,
Automation and Robotics (ICINCO) is to bring together researchers, engineers
and practitioners interested in the application of informatics to Control,
Automation and Robotics. Four simultaneous tracks will be held, covering
Intelligent Control Systems, Optimization, Robotics, Automation, Signal
Processing, Sensors, Systems Modeling and Control, and Industrial
Engineering, Production and Management. 

Informatics applications are pervasive in many areas of Control, Automation
and Robotics; This conference intends to emphasize this connection,
therefore, authors should highlight the benefits of Information Technology
(IT) in these areas. Ideas on how to solve problems using IT, both in R&D
and industrial applications, are welcome. Papers describing advanced
prototypes, systems, tools and techniques and general survey papers
indicating future directions are also encouraged. Papers describing original
work are invited in any of the areas listed below. Accepted papers,
presented at the conference by one of the authors, will be published in the
Proceedings of ICINCO, with an ISBN. Acceptance will be based on quality,
relevance and originality. Both full research reports and work-in-progress
reports are welcome. There will be both oral and poster sessions. 

Special sessions, dedicated to case-studies and commercial presentations, as
well as tutorials dedicated to technical/scientific topics are also
envisaged: companies interested in presenting their products/methodologies
or researchers interested in holding a tutorial, workshop or special session
are invited to contact the conference secretariat or visit the conference

Conference Areas

Each of these topic areas is expanded below but the sub-topics list is not
exhaustive. Papers may address one or more of the listed sub-topics,

Paper Submission

Authors should submit an original paper in English, carefully checked for
correct grammar and spelling, using the on-line submission procedure. The
initial submission must have between 3 to 13 pages otherwise it will be
rejected without review. Please check the paper formats page so you may be
aware of the accepted paper page limits. 
The guidelines for paper formatting provided at the conference web ought to
be used for all submitted papers. The preferred submission format is the
same as the camera-ready format. Please check and carefully follow the
instructions and templates provided. Each paper should clearly indicate the
nature of its technical/scientific contribution, and the problems, domains
or environments to which it is applicable. 

Papers that are out of the conference scope or contain any form of
plagiarism will be rejected without reviews. Please read INSTICC's ethical
norms regarding plagiarism and self-plagiarism
<http://www.icinco.org/norms_plagiarism.asp> .

Remarks about the on-line submission procedure:

1.     A "double-blind" paper evaluation method will be used. To facilitate
that, the authors are kindly requested to produce and provide the paper,
WITHOUT any reference to any of the authors. This means that is necessary to
remove the authors personal details, the acknowledgements section and any
reference that may disclose the authors identity. 
LaTeX/PS/PDF/DOC/DOCX/RTF format are accepted. 

2.     The web submission procedure automatically sends an acknowledgement,
by e-mail, to the contact author.

Paper submission types:

Regular Paper Submission
A regular paper presents a work where the research is completed or almost
finished. It does not necessary means that the acceptance is as a full
paper. It may be accepted as a "full paper" (30 min. oral presentation), a
"short paper" (20 min. oral presentation) or a "poster".

Position Paper Submission

A position paper presents an arguable opinion about an issue. The goal of a
position paper is to convince the audience that your opinion is valid and
worth listening to, without the need to present completed research work
and/or validated results. It is, nevertheless, important to support your
argument with evidence to ensure the validity of your claims. A position
paper may be a short report and discussion of ideas, facts, situations,
methods, procedures or results of scientific research (bibliographic,
experimental, theoretical, or other) focused on one of the conference topic
areas. The acceptance of a position paper is restricted to the categories of
"short paper" or "poster", i.e. a position paper is not a candidate to
acceptance as "full paper".

After the reviewing process is completed, the contact author (the author who
submits the paper) of each paper will be notified of the result, by e-mail.
The authors are required to follow the reviews in order to improve their
paper before the camera-ready submission. 


All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, under
an ISBN reference, on paper and on CD-ROM support.

Papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the SciTePress
Digital Library.

A short list of presented papers will be selected so that revised and
extended versions of these papers will be published by Springer-Verlag in a
LNEE Series book.
The proceedings will be submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters
Conference Proceedings Citation Index, INSPEC, DBLP and EI.
